    A throwing weapon used by ninja. They come in varying shapes and sizes, but generally aren't used for the purpose of eliminating the target, rather for distracting said target.

    Short summary describing this thing.

    Shuriken last edited by Sirkinsella98 on 06/03/18 12:35PM View full history

    Shuriken are generally regarded as "japanese throwing stars", although they may consist of any sharpened metal object that is to be thrown. They are often used as tactical weaponry, distracting the target while not necessarily causing fatal damage. The thrower is able to move in and attempt to land a killing blow while the target is preoccupied. Shuriken most often appear in games with Japanese origins, or games that feature Japanese themes, especially games featuring Ninja.

    A Shuriken, or litterally known as  "sword hidden in the hand" are used for throwing, stabbing or slashing opponents.
